Baldwin adds some suspense...
15 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

to this film, which is a cable ready movie, so use that as the parameter to judge it.

Kristy Swanson is Stephen Baldwin's wife, they are swingers who come across a personal ad placed by a bored married couple (Cameron Daddo is believable as a bored sales executive).

There are a few artful scenes in the beginning, which slowly degenerate to predictable, but then the couple begin to pursue Daddo and his wife, as well as their children. They pop up at a birthday party, buy them a plasma TV and move in to the vacant house next door.

There is an amusing scene where Baldwin says he and Louise (Kristy Swanson) are committed to the relationship and want it long-term, apparently swingers "going steady" to avoid the possibility of HIV, other complications.

Overall it is entertainment, worth watching for Baldwin as the villain. 5/10.
